Yup. Read about it here. The Department of Defense calls people who grow their own food ‘radical’ and extremists. Those who would decide to make the world a better place, who grow some organic cabbage, non-GMO corn, and tomatoes would be considered a threat to national defense (i.e., the corporate conservative viewpoint), according to a new training manual.
The manual defines a traditional “extremist” as “a person who advocates the use of force or violence; advocates supremacist causes based on race, ethnicity, religion, gender, or national origin; or otherwise engages to illegally deprive individuals or groups of their civil rights.” But “Nowadays, instead of dressing in sheets or publicly espousing hate messages, many extremists will talk of individual liberties, states’ rights, and how to make the world a better place.”
The implications go beyond profound.
